People Share 20 Memories Of The Worst Way They’ve Ever Been Dumped

Ending a relationship is always a challenging task. Nevertheless, if there is openness, honesty, and a sense of closure, it can sometimes alleviate some of the pain. On the other hand, when it comes to communicating with the person you’re breaking up with, there are certain approaches that can be considered the absolute worst!

During The Afterglow

One poster shared, “My now ex-wife made love to me, then right after, while still lying in bed together in the afterglow, she took off her ring and gave it to me and said she wanted a divorce. I couldn’t believe she had done it that way, although I was ready for it to end.”

On Holiday

A second poster recalled, “Tell them that they can spend Christmas in your guest room when they visit because someone else will be staying in their room with them.”

Romance Over

A third poster added, “She started making out with another dude while we were at a party. We were all sitting on the same couch. That deflates the romance pretty quickly.”

A commenter said, “Make the decision hastily. Tell everyone but them. Ghost them. Then send them an email to not their primary email that they don’t check. Show up at their doorstep a week later, asking to have them back.”

Via Social Media

This Redditor shared, “I found out my ex and I weren’t together after he posted an Instagram picture with his best friend of 3 years saying “It only took me 3 years to ask her out.”

A Real Good Bye

A user recalled, “My college roommate spent an entire weekend with his girlfriend from another state, knowing he was going to break up with her. When he dropped her off at the train station on Sunday, he waited until she leaned in to kiss him goodbye. Broke the news instead of kissing her, didn’t even unbuckle and get out. She stood there stunned with bags on the curb, and he closed the door and drove off.”

A Quiet & Confusing Way

One Redditor said, “She left and never returned. Didn’t send any messages, blocked me on social media, and never gave me a reason. Losing someone you thought was fine with you so suddenly in such a quiet and confusing way will really eff with someone’s anxiety and self-esteem.”

Gone In The Night

A top-liked comment said, “My fiance of 7 years (friends for 15 years) left while I was sleeping. Took everything. Never told me why, and it was the most horrifying, mentally damaging experience of my life. You have to really not give a f****k about someone to hurt them like that.”

Gifted And Ran

This Redditor added, “Christmas Eve, my ex got all her gifts because we wouldn’t see each other the next day because she would be “busy.” It turned out she had been cheating on me with another guy, and she just wanted to get her gifts. After packing everything, she said, “Oh yea, we’re done. I’m seeing someone else,” and left. We were together for several years and engaged then, but at least I got the ring back.”

At A Loss

A poster shared, “Go to a public place and act like everything is normal. Then pat yourself down as if you’re looking for something. Start frantically looking under and inside random objects. When you feel an appropriate amount of time has passed, go back and tell them you’ve lost your feelings for them. Welcome to my first high school break up.”

Guess Who

A commenter recalled, “A conversation between me and my immature ex: Ex: Hey, guess who broke up today? Me: Who?! Ex: Us! This is how my college boyfriend broke up with me on the phone in front of his frat brothers.”

Not The Best Time

This user said, “Probably either on the second day of a 7-day trip or on the second hour of a 9-hour bus ride where you still have to be within 10 feet of each other for the rest of the damn trip. Not that I’m bitter or anything.”

After Decades

A poster added, “Bottle up your feeling for the person. Marry them. Then spend 30+ years together. Then one day, tell them you’re not in love with them and haven’t been in decades.”

Through A Text

A commenter shared, “My boyfriend broke up by texting me and asking how my day was. I said, “Fine, how was yours?” He responded, “Great had a fantastic day with my girlfriend.” I was at work all day. We had been together for 4 years and been living together for 2. . . He had been cheating on me and decided to leave me for his mistress. Good times.”

Figure It Out

A top-liked comment said, “By not even communicating the break-up but still communicating with them, while slowly becoming less and less talkative until they finally figure out that the relationship is over on their own. It’s slow torture. Just be honest and straightforward.”

Taking Work Home

A poster recalled, “Pick out another dude you think is a little cute, have s****x with him at work a few times, bring home crabs and chlamydia, claim that BOTH are really only fleas from my dog and spray paint my car for not “being cool” about everything afterward because I should “know how redheads are!”

So You Know

One Redditor said, “My ex-boyfriend invited me out for dinner. We’d been dating for about 6 months. I arrive to find him sitting at a table with another chick. He introduces her as his girlfriend. I asked him what his deal was, and he said, “I thought this way you’d know it’s over, and I could give you some closure.”

Relationship Status

This user said, “Kisses me goodbye after I dropped him off to get his car. Went to class, got home, and saw all his stuff was gone. Texted him, in mild panic, asking what was going on. He blocked my number and changed his relationship status on Facebook to single a few days later. We were together for 2.5 years and lived together for 2.”

Comedic Timing

A Redditor recalled, “Had a friend break up with a girl in Red Robin. Right in the middle of it, the mascot came over to give her a balloon. Comedic timing perfection.”

Not Working Out

Finally, A Redditor said, “Girlfriend of 5 years wanted to move into a new house on the nicer side of town. We looked and looked and found a place nearly twice as expensive but in our price range. The day we got the keys, I went to work for the day, got off work, and all her stuff was gone. She said things weren’t working out and moved back home with her parents (we were only 23). Also, she never sent me a penny for rent that year after the breakup. A fun year that was.”
